The property is in Vancouver Heights, North-Western corner of Burnaby. From the property, there are fantastic views from Stanley Park and Vancouver harbour in the west to the North Shore Mountains and Indian Arm in the east. It's a 15 minute drive to a number of great spots including the heart of downtown Vancouver, the foot of Grouse, Cypress or Seymour Mountains, and the sandy beaches of Barnet Marine park. This is a great location!
The neighborhood is known for its fabulous delicatessens, coffee shops, and restaurants of every ethnicity. Public bus transportation is a 2 minute walk away. There is a marine park right below the property that offers miles of jogging, biking and hiking on trails that reach into Burnaby Mountain to the east, and the waterfront and city to the west. It's easy to get to the top of Burnaby Mountain, the home of Simon Fraser University, with lots of great recreational opportunities and classes found there. The North Shore Mountains - Grouse, Seymour and Cypress - has great down-hill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing in the winter, and hiking trails, wildlife reserves, restaurants and picnic areas with stunning views in the warmer months...and so much more. Eileen Daily Leisure Centre has 2 pools, a steam room, exercise classes and weight training facilities and is a 2 minute drive away.
There are 2 parks within a 2 - 5 minute drive with tennis courts, soccer fields, a children's wading pool and climbing apparatus'. The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) grounds are a 3 minute drive away and offer skating at the Pacific Colieseum in the winter months, Playland (a family amusement park) and Hastings Horse Racing Track, both open from spring to late summer. The PNE National Exhibition is open the last 2 weeks of August. Close by is the New Brighton beach park and outdoor swimming pool - great for a swim and afternoon picnic....There is so much to explore in this neighbourhood!

Our family had an excellent vacation staying at this wonderful place for a week. This was the perfect place for our family of two grandparents, three adults, and a young toddler. The house was spacious, spotless, very comfortable, and well supplied. We absolutely loved the location of this house, especially the gorgeous views of the mountains and the harbor from the dining room and upstairs bedrooms.
Our family also loved this quiet residential area, good parking spot in front of the house for our rental van, short walking distance to a nearby park, easy access to public transportation, 5 minutes drive to Safe Way, bakeries, fruit markets, cafes and numerous restaurants.
Thank you Wayne for your great suggestions on the restaurants, especially the Italian and Japanese places. It was so relaxing eating late night dinners with delicious take outs from the nearby restaurants, nice and quiet with our baby already in bed upstairs, while enjoying the amazing million dollars view from your dinner room. Thank you Sean for providing the baby gates, the Pack and Play, the high chair, the basket of children books and toys, and especially the three vases of beautiful fresh cut flowers for the welcoming touch. Both of you were so friendly, caring, helpful, and had made us feel so welcomed. It was a truly a home away from home vacation experience. We would highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Vancouver, especially family with children.
My family was in the harbor-tour business for many years. We really enjoyed the opportunity to take visitors out from all over the world on cruises of Vancouver harbour, seeing the mountain, ocean and city views from the water. Once again, we can offer visitors the same views - from this property in Vancouver Heights.
Aside from the convenience to so many great recreational and cultural venues, the specialness of this property is it's unbelievably great, ever changing, mountain and harbour view. You'll enjoy it too.
